Our History: Legacy is Lovely
In 1981, Raiders of the Lost Ark hit the box office, Microsoft released MS-DOS, Post-It Notes were blowing everyone’s minds, and future Zumasys founder and CEO Paul Giobbi, age 11, started his career in the Pick, Unix and midrange computing market working for his family’s business, International Spectrum. Fast-forward to Orange County, CA in September 2000 and Paul co-founded Zumasys with his late business partner Joe Cupp, a pioneer in the Pick MultiValue databases. Zumasys started as a computer reseller and eventually grew into one of the leading cloud computing providers for accounting/ERP systems with nearly 100 employees and $30M in revenue.
From day one, Paul and Joe knew they wanted Zumasys to be more than just a infrastructure provider. With their history in legacy systems, they began developing a unique value proposition centered on the applications that matter most to their customers. Zumasys ultimately sold its cloud and infrastructure business to NexusTek in 2018, retaining its software assets AccuTerm, jBASE and OpenQM, and now the company focuses exclusively on helping customers evolve their Pick systems.
Years later, the technology has changed, but our mission remains the same. We take homegrown applications, ERP systems and business-critical applications and layer on modern development techniques to move these applications forward. Our customers don’t have to choose between the technologies they want and the applications they need to run their businesses.
